I know the issue of religion and mental illness has been brought up here before, but most of it seems to probably originate from this statement made by Kathleen Taylor which seems very vague and elusive. The title of the article uses the term experts, but as most similar articles, they all seem to point to this particular person. What seems to have happened is that she's given a public proclamation outside of her book (a probable plug for her book) which leaves room to make adjustments if confronted, because the term religious fundamentalism might mean different things to different people.

And then of course her comments get taken into more extreme definitions by those referencing her article who might refer to a generic statement that religion, belief in God, etc. is a mental illness.
